 About the Book 

In this startling version of the closing books of The Odyssey Neil Curry has scrubbed the story free of all its side-tracks and digressions so as to leave clear one thread of Odysseuss final journey: from the shores of Ithaca to the marriage-bedMoreIn this startling version of the closing books of The Odyssey Neil Curry has scrubbed the story free of all its side-tracks and digressions so as to leave clear one thread of Odysseuss final journey: from the shores of Ithaca to the marriage-bed where he is finally reunited with Penelope. Cast in language that has been equally pared down until it is spare, sinewy and colloquial, the vigour of Currys narrative is compelling proof that Homers poem was meant to be heard.
